To create the look and feel of an entryway although the home is completely lacking in one, a properly scaled console table was placed just inside the door to hold keys, mail and wallets. The space above is used to hold jackets, scarves and bags while the space below houses baskets for shoes, boots and pet supplies.
This elegant hallways is incredibly bright thanks to the natural light that pours into the space from the window on the door and the window that bisects the bookshelves. That natural light reflects off the neutral walls, making the space feel large and bright. Designers added neat colors and textures to make the space more personal, such as the bright blue patterned couch and curtain, the leaf pendant light and the wall hangings.
Hallways have a tendency to be dark, claustrophobic places, but this hallway is an elegant exception. Light and bright, this hallway makes the most of the windows that allow light to spill in from outside with a neutral wall color that reflects light, keeping the space open, while the hardwood floor adds warmth to the space and carpet adds depth and texture.
Designers were careful to blend the indoor and outdoor spaces by taking advantage of sight lines from the home's interior design. The plants in the front courtyard and the back yard can be seen from the living room, kitchen, bedroom and hallways. Here, a sculptural cactus provides a backdrop for art inside the home.
Leading the way to the bedrooms, the hallway continues the stylish and contemporary feel of the rest of the home. Spiked pendant lights suspend from the chocolate brown tray ceiling, and dark hardwood flooring tie the spaces together.
The meticulously renovated property includes four floors, seven bedrooms and baths all served by an elevator. Natural light and beautiful light fixtures show off the home's original details and beautiful antique furniture.
